TaxPayers’ Alliance responds to UK inflation hitting a 40-year high

For immediate release


Responding to the Office for National Statistics' (ONS) latest data showing CPI at 9.1 per cent in May, John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

“Spiralling inflation is taking its toll on taxpayers.

“While hard-working households face a cost of living crisis, demands for further public sector pay rises risk increasing this burden and stoking inflationary fires.

“Now is the time for the government to be bold and implement meaningful tax cuts, giving much-needed respite to private and public sector workers alike.”
